Hi @AnnaAdezati-0204,
Welcome to Q&A forum!
According to your description, your issue may need help of Custom XML, please refer to: Custom XML parts overview.
Since we are focused on general issues about PowerPoint client, I would remove tag office-powerpoint-itpro and add a relevant tag for you.
Thanks for your understanding.

@AnnaAdezati-0204 I recommend that you add the tag [office-sharepoint-server-development]. This is a broad question and depends on several variables that should start with our Sharepoint dev folks. [openspecs-office-sharepoint] is more about wire protocol specifications that probably won't help you much here. I've added the appropriate tag.

Best regards,

Hi @AnnaAdezati-0204,

Per my research, you could try to update PowerPoint from SharePoint columns by way of Excel as a workaround.

1.SharePoint

Select your list > LIST > Connect & Exprot > Exprot to Excel > Save

2.Excel

Create a Excel sheet > Data > Connections > Add... > Browse for More... > Select the file downloaded in step 1 > then you could create tables or something you like

3.PowerPoint

Copy the Excel created in step 2 > Paste > Paste Special > Paste link > OK

For more details: Link Data in PowerPoint to the Source (Database / Sharepoint)
